The great thing about thsi project is that it's low risk -- we have already build the prototypes of these boards -- I have one sitting on my desk in front of me as we speak.
We will be offering them as bare boards, or as kits with boards and connectors etc. that you solder in yourself -- so there's no manufacturing/assembly/test stuff that coudl become overwhelming -- just sticking things in boxes and taking them to the post office.
